Today I have a delish snack recipe for you guys. I made some Guacamole yesterday for me and my husband to have a treat while we watched Breaking Bad (ahhhh! anybody see last night's episode!?) and I am gonna brag and say this recipe is the best Guac I've ever had. Plus it is super super easy--chop up a bunch of veggies and mash them together... done!  This would make a great dip for a Labor Day party this weekend!

Guacamole is more of an art than an exact science, but this is a great base recipe.  Feel free to add your favorite ingredients to taste--jalapeƱos, tomatoes, hot sauce, anything!


  • 2 large avocados (they should be ripe and give when you press on the skin)
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup green onions chopped (about 2 green onions)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • Optional: a few dashes of hot sauce

  1. Chop up your cilantro and green onions.  Pit and peel your avocado and put in a bowl. Use a fork or potato masher to mash up the avocado.
  2. Add lime juice and mix.
  3. Add the cilantro, green onions, garlic, salt, and a dash of black pepper.  Also at this point, add any extra ingredients or hot sauce.  Mix to incorporate.
  4. Taste to check for seasonings--add more salt or lime juice if needed. 
To store: I've read that you could add an avocado pit to the guacamole when storing to prevent it from turning brown--I tried it this time, and it totally works!  Store the guac in a bowl with an avocado pit in the middle (optional) and cover it in plastic wrap.  Refrigerate.


  1. Ahhh I've been feeling like guacamole recently - I gotta try this recipe!
